We saw lots of incidents similar to that of Bourdais and Massa but in each case every driver whether goint out pit or closing at Turn 1 had respected other's racing line. Yet in this one, I think it was Massa who didn't respect Bourdais' line. It was a racing incident but I don't think no one deserved a penalty.

+1
The FIA are saying now that Bourdais should have deleted his car for 3 seconds :blink: . FIA: why are we going to drive the next 2 races??? :blink:

That's a disgrace.Any racing fan around the globe wil tell you it was Massa's fault.And Bourdais drove great and is punished for doing nothing wrong.That's a joke.

Thats so unfair, not just on the title race, but for Bourdais. He drove an outstanding race for 6th and now its been taken away when it wasn't his fault. Toro Rosso should appeal that one (as should McLaren)

You can't appeal.McLaren went to court and were told you can't appeal a penalty.

Judging by the picture ive seen, Heikki should be penalised for taking Kimi wide, Kimi penalise for taking Massa wide, Trulli penalised for taking Glock wide.

Furthermore, DC has been given a fine and grid penalty for damage to the barrier and Sutil has been fined for laying down tyre shreds on the main straight

Probably we should have guessed that this would happen .. There was no necessity to take the incident to be investigated after the race.
